Among my resolutions I decided to dare more with hairstyles, I want to try and test new options. I love long hair in the wind, but I wanna start having them tied up, so yesterday I opted for a side braid, that I personally adore. I’d like to be able to comb my hair in many ways but unfortunately in this sphere, as in the makeup sphere, I don’t have a lot of experience, but I’ll do my best. I used some vintage pieces: I found the brooch months ago in a vintage market, the shoes are from my grandma (she had an amazing taste) and also the Chanel bag is at least 20 years old. In my blog you’ll soon see (I hope in the next days) some different posts because I want to compare with many realities that I’m interested in, and to see If you’ll like them both, even if fashion will always be the main character.
Thanks a lot to Weardrobe for adding me to the list of the best fashionblog of 2009 (pag. 101), and also my best friend Vero opened a blog!
I thank you for everything and I hope to always get better at what I do.

Tra i miei propositi c’è sicuramente quello di osare di più con le pettinature, provare e sperimentare.Amo i capelli lunghi sciolti nel vento, ma voglio cominciare a portarli anche più spesso raccolti, e quindi ieri ho optato per la treccia di lato, che personalmente adoro. Vorrei esser capace di fare mille pettinature diverse ma purtroppo in questo ambito, come nel trucco, sono veramente poco pratica, ma farò del mio meglio. Ho usato poi molti pezzi vintage: la spilla sul cappello l’ho trovata mesi fa ad un mercatino vintage, le scarpe sono di mia nonna (aveva un gusto impeccabile) e anche la Chanel ha almeno 20 anni. Nel mio blog vedrete presto (anche nei prossimi giorni spero) dei posts diversi dal solito perchè voglio confrontarmi con tante realtà che mi interessano, e vedere se possono piacere anche a voi, anche se naturalmente la moda sarà sempre la protagonista.
Grazie mille anche a Weardrobe per avermi incluso nei miglior fashionblog del 2009 (pag.101), ed anche la mia miglior amica Vero ha aperto un blog!
Vi ringrazio veramente di tutto e spero di riuscire a fare sempre meglio.

  • Brava! Continua a sperimentare e mixare capi, colori e accessori diversi 😀 L'effetto è sempre molto bello!

    Io quando vado ai mercatini sui Navigli sono sempre tentata di comprare vecchie spille e bracciali ma alla fine non prendo mai nulla :-S Sono negata nell'abbinare gli accessori…

  • Aww Chiara you look so cute like this!

    Kudos on your braids! You look like Alexander Wang models now 😀 😀

    Thanks so much Harleen, I'd really like a longer braid but my hair grows so slowly damnit!
    Grazie amore mio, era il minimo che potessi fare!

  • Hi Chiarra!
    this look is adorable at my opinion! and the hairstyle suites you a lot, i wear this one myself often, so nice to see it on you. I think that highlifted "ponytail" would do great for you too!

    Hope to read more soon!

  • adoro spilla e borsa! prova anche uno chignon spettinato! staresti benissimo!

    Reply to carola

    questo abbinamento è davvero bello 🙂 i pezzi vintage mischiati a quelli attuali lo rendono ricercato e originale (mi piace davvero molto l'abbinamento pantaloni in pelle e camicia di jeans!)

    spero che parlerai ogni tanto anche di arte, Chiara 🙂 ti linko il sito di un'artista americana che potrebbe piacerti: http://www.jennyholzer.com/list.php
    anche se probabilmente la conosci già 😉

    Reply to M.

    Let's prove the chignon hairstyle!!
    I knew you live in your sweet flat in Milano!!=) I meant if you prefer studying at your parents, perhaps for more support..?
    What for a good luck, your mum, gradma and you have the same shoe number, isn't it?

    Lia I prefer studying in Milan because at my parents' house I feel like I'm on holiday and I have less concentration!
    Thanks girls you are adorable, this is one of my favouirte outfits as well!
    Yes we all share the same shoe number more or less, I'm a 40 and they're a 39!

    Reply to Chiara Ferragni

    Yes, that exactly happens to me!I can hardly study where my brother is! that's why I asked.. =) Besos, Chiara!

    La treccia di lato ti sta d'incanto e la borsetta potrebbe davvero essere la mia dannazione. Io ormai non ho più parenti femmnili cui non abbia saccheggiato armadi e soffitte.

    Sei fantastica!

    first of all learn how to write my name in a correct way,
    second start using your ideas and your phrases, don't just copy sentences used by other people (you think I don't remember who wrote the words you only copied?) i find it really pathetic.
    And third, have fun with your life 😀

    Reply to Chiara Ferragni
  • I really love this outfit on you! Especially the the brooch and the YSL shirt! But I was wondering, where did you buy the YSL shirt? I can read it's by "Brandy" but where can I find this? Is this a store or is the shirt also available online? Thaaaanks in advance 🙂

  • Stai bene con la treccia. Le scarpe trovo che stonino con la mise.Scusami se te lo chiedo ma hai una leggera forma di couperose sul viso? Perchè noto sempre questo tuo incarnato macchiato.

    wow!!davvero bello questo outfit!!..e poi quelle scarpettine così romantiche!!!cmq effettivamente non ricordo alcuna foto in cui hai i capelli raccolti o roba varia..ma con una chioma del genere puoi permetterti qualunque variante..(eheh..il vantaggio di avere capelli lunghi!!)..secondo me staresti benissimo anche con una coda alta!

  • Io adoro il vintage e grazie a mia nonna ho rimediato delle bellissime borse! Peccato che di piede avesse il 38 da giovane ed io il 41 =D
    La spilletta è bellissima ed anche le scarpe, per non parlare della borsa.

    I liquid invece mi sembrano un po' larghi, e per te che hai le gambe magre li vedrei meglio super attillati.

  • Chiara bellissima come sempre! Anche con questa nuova pettinatura! 🙂
    Mi piace la tua idea di aver accompagnato il tuo cappellino con una spilla vintage by Chanel! Davverogeniale!

    1. You wrote my name in a wrong way, I'm Chiara Ferragni
    2.Yes I read all the comments people write on my blog, I think It should be stupid not to do that. And I remember that comment because I answered him, why didn't you write it was your brother's words and not yours?
    3. Be honest the way you want, but you only are giving an opinion. Nobody really knows the truth and everybody has his different taste.

    Reply to Chiara Ferragni

    You are showing a lot about your life, your friends, your family on the blog – most of you followers appreciate that, they can relate to you, but please be careful – it makes you vulnerable to those who think they can affront you in a aggressiv way thats not appropriate. Girls: REALITY IS CRUEL ENOUGH :/ So be careful about what you share and keep going! Love your Blog.

  • tzoules, i find it a bit funny that all the bloggers who actually have GOOD blogs only say nice things to each other, (for example, Chiara and stylescrapbook) while people with bad blogs (like you) can only criticise her. something smells like jealousy. and while jealousy is normal, being mean is definitely not!
    i had read the comments on chiara's previous post which that boy had left, and you literally copy pasted it into your blog! and you pretend that you wrote it, that you are brave and clever.. you can tell from the quality of the english alone that those are not your words!
    lastly, in your blog you post pictures of yourself and talk about your boyfriend as well, so i don't see how you have any privacy…

    Demontmartre I agree with you,I know that I'm not supposed to be appreciated by all the world, but I hate when peopole criticize only because they have nothing better to do or think they're the only ones who own the truth. I just can't get how people could even spend time talking about something they dislike, but maybe I'm the strange one, because I prefer living my own life the best way then having something bad to say about other people.

    Reply to Chiara Ferragni

  • hey, just wanted to leave one out of 1000 comments here 😉 .. ive just read tzoule's blog cuz this kid already copied articles of my blog without telling who the REAL author was & i found it really amusing reading your answer.

    1. complete agreement! kinda sad that people don't even learn english before they start criticizing in a foreign language 😉 but get used to people writing in english having it learned in the german system. even sader if they are criticizing something they don't know about at all (as i take the right to judge.. personally i think there is nothing "délicieux", "outstanding" or "special" about the fashion habits of miss fashion queen from the middle of nowhere) .

    2. get used to jealousy. (although i think you already are to some extent). seriously.. remember if someone is criticizing you from germany is not even a word worth to talk about … MOST (not all) people over here are pretending to have a sense they are not born with.

    keep on doing your thing .. i like visiting your blog & looking what ms. ferragni wore today 🙂 – it's inspiring & finally there is someone out in this blogger world not having the digusting sense of "oh-my-god-im-such-a-wasted-and-nerdy-blogger"-dude with nerdy glasses & ripped clothes giving the impression of a hobo.

    I think it's sad how some people think common courtesy doesn't apply in cyberspace. While it's perfectly acceptable to have an opinion and even to put it in one's blog I think commenting on YOUR page to let you know she criticized you in hers, is a little disrespectful. Keep blogging, Chiara. 😀
